Green Pen Work

Is to be organised as best suits your class. Suggestions include it being an independent task in Guided Reading, Early Bird work when children come into school at 8.50, a designated timetable slot etc, directly after verbal feedback (should always be marked as V with brief summary of what said)

 

Marking must consist of:

    • High quality feedback that ensures children know when work is correct
    • Next steps that will move learning on
    • Opportunity for children to respond to feedback via ‘Green Pen’ work

Monitoring of Policy

Weekly book scrutiny will monitor the implementation and impact of the policy and feedback will be given staff as and when appropriate.
